This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive. This series of segments features Lead Squeak Developer Diego Gomez Deck. Squeak is a Free Open Source Software media authoring tool and programming language for GNU Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. Squeak's claim to fame is that it allows simple end users, even children, to build programs by dragging and dropping objects. In this series of interviews, Diego explains Squeak and why it is an important part of the family of Free Open Source Software tools. Squeak is a descendent of a software project started by Alan Kay. You can find out more about Squeak by going to Squeakland.org or searching for "squeak" on Wikipedia.
